Baba Sala

Nigeria’s entertainment industry may suffer another tragedy soon, if urgent help does not come for one of its most versatile and popular stakeholder, Moses Olaiya, comedian and film maker, who had kept the industry aglow for several decades.

Baba Sala, who is presently down with stroke, is a complete shadow of himself and could barely speak or walk on his own, on Wednesday, during a media outing to talk on the forthcoming presentation of his biography, scheduled for December, 4.

But he managed to pass this message to his numerous fans and public-spirited individuals: “I need help. Nigerians should help me. I am not dead yet, they should not let me die suffering.”

Baba Sala’s first son, Reverend Dele Adejumo, said the octogenarian was not suffering from old age but lacked of funds for medical treatment, adding that his investments had all been wrecked by poor management.
He said: “He has investments but they have all been wrecked by mismanagement. He also had a three-storey building in Mushin, Lagos which he had to sell to offset debt incurred when his work, Orun Mooru, was pirated.

“We still have some of his recorded works not in public yet but machines that will be used to transform them to an acceptable format are not easily available. We do not have the kind of money they are charging us.
“We have been told that Baba needs a lot of money for medical treatment abroad. He is suffering from stroke and other ailments.
“There are many people of his age who are not like this. We are trying our best as family members. We take him to the teaching hospital weekly but he needs proper medical attention.”
